Full length videos from the 2015 Ashokan Water­shed Con­fer­ence held on April 10 at the Ashokan Cen­ter in Olive­bridge are now avail­able for view­ing on the AWSMP Youtube chan­nel.

Watch and lis­ten as Bob Steud­ing speaks about the build­ing of the Ashokan Reser­voir and the social forces that drove it. Learn from Pro­fes­sion­al Engi­neer George Fowler how his­tor­i­cal stream man­age­ment prac­tices have caused last­ing impacts on our region’s streams. Become engaged while lis­ten­ing to for­est ento­mol­o­gist Mark Whit­more and Town of Wood­stock Envi­ron­men­tal Com­mis­sion Chair­man Jim Han­son explain how inva­sive insects like Hem­lock Wool­ly Adel­gid and Emer­ald Ash Bor­er are threat­en­ing our native forests, the impacts they will cause and the work that com­mu­ni­ties need to do to pre­pare for them. Final­ly,  hear from a pan­el of “steam experts” as they answer some of the more com­mon and press­ing ques­tions that the pub­lic has about streams and how they are managed.

This is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty for those who missed the con­fer­ence but want to hear the speak­er pre­sen­ta­tions, or for those who attend­ed and want to revis­it some infor­ma­tion  they may have for­got­ten. There are a num­ber of oth­er great videos from past con­fer­ences and events on the chan­nel so be sure to check those out too!
